Warman's Barn with parking near Stansted Airport
The Warman's Barn is a refreshing change from the usual chain hotels you'll find at most airports. The hotel's rooms are over the road in an extension from the owner's home. You might well be personally shown over to your room by the staff and one of the owner's pets might come over to say hello on the way. Peaceful country surrounds will more than make up for spartan facilities and the 'no kids' policy will ensure there are no noisy children around to ruin the tranquil atmosphere.

This quiet, informal country pub, a traditional haunt of WWII pilots, hides a stunning menu of delicious dishes that will top anything you'd expect from an airport hotel. You could start with homemade salmon, roasted pepper and tarragon fishcakes with sweet chilli sauce, followed by chicken and leek pie with mashed potato and garden peas, and then a sumptuous sherry trifle for dessert. If the weather's nice, you'll even be able to eat outside on the terrace.
